Nice bird. I hadn't heard of them until now. Reminds me of the Pied wagtail in Britain.

Wow that white brow really stands out. It still looks like a wagtail though.

Wagtails are always such chirpy birds - this is a new one to me! In our new life, we will be a lot closer to India and I hope a return visit will be on the cards at some point!
Happy Sunday.
